I didn't watch the entire game but from what I saw at the end, Minnesotta just looked horrible.

Look man, as a Philly fan I totally don't expect you to be objective.

Yes they won. That is obvious. There is a winner and a loser. Unless when you play the Bengals. :rolleyes:

At times the Eagles were lucky.

But they were the superior team in every facet. Offensively, defensively, special teams, schemes, substitutions etc.

They dominated time of poss, sacks, turnovers, and 3rd down conversion.

Minn was lucky to score.

Every game involves a certain element of luck, but I hardly ever call any win a "lucky" win. There's just too much that goes into a game for me to accept that description.

Bottom line for this game? Despite some flashes, Travaris Jackson just wasn't up to the task. he's improved, and maybe someday he will be "up to it" but today was not that day.

For that matter, Adrian Peterson didn't look as dominant as people thought he could be. A few good runs yeah, but nowhere near the level of expectation.

Add in that the presence of Pat Williams could have helped the Vikes out a lot, especially in the second half.

Bottom line: The Eagles won it, but next week won't be a walk in the park for them (for the Panthers either).

I love the eagles fans. One week they want to kill Reid and McNab, and this week they are going to win the superbowl.

I recall seeing the same type of responses here as well of the past few seasons.

Nature of the sports fan world. :willy_nilly:

true, but much worse for philly. I love talk radio on mondays when the eagles lose. I also get about 5 eagles fight song voicemail messages waiting for me at work when they win.
